Numerology is a belief in the spiritual or mystical relationship between numbers and coinciding events. It’s also the study of the numerical value of letters in words, names and ideas, and can have astrological and paranormal implications.
In a culture increasingly obsessed with data and quantification, numerology takes on new meaning and possibility. For Humble’s final online exhibition of 2018, we’d love to see your photos dealing with numbers and their limitless metaphorical tangents.
Deadline: November 20, 2018
